React Presents - News Flash

Before we made the mistake of working in the music business, React staff were nothing more than fans of the music. So we’re going to start posting about newly released music of interest for you all to check out. We’ve very cleverly calling it…New Music Friday. Let’s jump right in!

Siku – Nicola Cruz
Nicola Cruz incorporates elements of his Andean identity deep into his, symbolically and sonically. Using research elements in regards to Latin and African origins, much like the producer Romare, Cruz creates a techno-jungle soundscape over top of swaying, ambient foundation (Señor, de la Piedras).

Polar (Music From the Netflix Film Polar) – Deadmau5
As the temperatures dip into the negatives next week, Deadmau5’s scoring debut for the Netflix film Polar will keep you warm. Ambient tones and underlying bass introduce the score if only to juxtapose his essential progressive dance tracks. Listen to the latest Mau5trap original below

Watch and Wait (EP) – Ella Vos
Maybe you’ve never heard of Ella Vos, but you’ll be hearing more from her soon. Vos’s latest EP “Watch and Wait” is the pop-electro ballad album you’ve been waiting for. Akin to Maggie Rogers with a tinge of loneliness to it, Vos’s voice sounds just as good through the speakers of your car as it does playing in the background.

No More Normal – Swindle
Swindle is bound to make a fan out of you with his trap, grime, jazz, and hip-hop infused project “No More Normal”. Coming from a dubstep & rap background, Swindle took on a holistic approach to this project, setting out to create room for every genre and artist available in the modern scene. Tracks such as “Run Up” and “Reach The Stars” are appreciative of funk elements while also harboring more electronic effects. After recording for over the span of three years, this is a one of kind project to bring into 2019.

Sad Bangers Vol. 1 EP – Curtis Lowe (aka Conor Cook)
Sad Bangers essentially sounds like that one playlist we all admittedly have to cheer us up when we’re down and Curtis Lowe’s essential house songs are a perfect addition. Single “Breaking Me” will have you dancing out of work this Friday afternoon, while “Automatic” and “Out of Focus” supply the right mood to prepare for a night out on the town.
